Roger Teska Seizes Big Chip Lead with Massive Double Knockout
Level 7: 250-500, 50 ante
Tyson Marks, Ty Reiman, and Roger Teska see a flop of J32 and Marks bets out. Reiman calls and Teska raises. Marks doesn't back down and moves all-in. Reiman than reraises all-in for around 140,000, having both Marks and Teska covered.
Teska had about 100,000 heading into the flop and calls with 22 for bottom set. Marks is the shortest of the three stacks and has Q8 for a diamond flush draw. Reiman has him drawing slim though, as he holds A5 for the nut flush draw and a gutshot.
The K on the turn is no help to Reiman or Marks and the J on the river fills Teska up to give him the entire pot, not to mention eliminate Marks.
With that, Teska leaps to a huge chip lead with 234,000 chips.
